ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Breweries say they’ve taken a huge hit since the coronavirus pandemic began. They’re among the last businesses still waiting to fully reopen under the governor’s health order.
“It’s really hard because we’re all extremely passionate,” said Skye Devore, the President of the New Mexico Brewers Guild. Local brewers and distillers say they’re becoming impatient while waiting for their turn to let their customers back inside. “It’s very aggravating,” said Matt Simonds, the Owner of Broken Trail Distillery.
